The waffle maker should not only be thought of to make sweet treats.  These Potato Waffles are a classic example of a savory treat and to make it even better, you can use leftover mash and add some additional ingredients and you have a satisfying meal for lunch or a snack.  

Here we have also added a delicious and easy Celery Peach Salad to pair or even enjoy on top of the Potato Waffle. Feel free to play around with other ingredients you may have available and you can prepare such a delicious meal with very little effort and in no time.

Your family will enjoy it and I am sure will thank you for not wasting any leftover food.  Both the Potato Waffles and the Celery Peach Salad uses very little effort and ingredients you may have in the fridge just begging to be used.
